We’ve reported before on unique ways to dispose of someone’s body after death. However, a friend found a new one that already has people lining up to use it – The Mushroom Death Suit. The brainstorm of Jae Rhim Lee, it’s a burial suit that contains mushroom spoors. They will be able to “eat” your body and neutralize its toxins after you’ve been buried. The suit will prevent toxins in the human body from being released into the environment after death and is also intended to help deliver nutrients to plant roots more quickly and efficiently.
The first real user of this suit will be Dennis White, a 63-year-old man suffering from a neurodegenerative disease. He hopes that this will make his death a greener process.
The Infinity Burial suit (the other name for this product) is available in pod form for animal burials as well.
Whether the suit will actually work in practice is yet to be seen…but it’s certainly an interesting idea.
